Comics this week

Trinity #6- A strange thing happen in this issue of Trinity; I find that I prefer the back-up to the main story. Of course that may have something to do with Hawkman as the main player in the back-up, but it also tell you there's something wrong with the main story this week. Basically this week we have writer Kurt Busiek trying to tell us how different are Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman...again. We get it already Kurt, we already had six straight weeks of it already. When can we get start on the mystery of the dreams?

Secret Invasion #4- I know of some people who prefer Marvel's Secret Invasion to DC's Final Crisis; for the life of me I don't understand why. After showing up at the end of last issue, you would expect Nick Fury to play an important role here right? Not even close! The action shift from space (how is Agent Brand still alive after 2 issue in space?), the Savage Land and New York with some narration from some Skrull. Nick Fury did nothing expect to shoot someone on his side. And what's with the Black Widow? After having a shoot first policy, she then refused to shoot Tony Stark? The Skrull Spider Woman's speech to Tony Stark was another head spinner, why don't she just shoot him if he was one of the handful of humans who can saved the human race like the Black Widow said. Secret Invasion #4 is a total mess.

Nova #15- One thing about this issue. The art by Salvador Larroca is great! The guy really knows how to show a world ending. Having said that, this issue doesn't reach the height of the earlier issues. I think writer Matt Fraction made a mistake when he use the struggle between Nova and Harrow as the main focus of the issue. I am a firm believer that when you have Galactus and Silver Surfer in the background; use them! The fight between Nova and Harrow is satisfying, but that's all. Satisfying, but not as outstanding as the earlier issues.
